V: A man after my own heart.

Creedy: Why should I trust you?
V: Because it's the only way you're ever going to stop me!

Strength through unity! Unity through faith!

Lewis Prothero

I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence.

The time has come for me to meet my maker and to repay him in kind for all that he has done.

V: Would you... dance with me?
Evey Hammond: Now? On the eve of your revolution?
V: A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having!

One thing is true of all governments - their most reliable records are tax records.

Finch

Finch: Who was he?
Evey Hammond: He was Edmond Dantés... and he was my father. And my mother... my brother... my friend. He was you... and me. He was all of us.

There are no coincidences, Delia... only the illusion of coincidence.

Evey Hammond: I don't want you to die.
V: That's the most beautiful thing you could have ever given me.

V for Vendetta Quotes

Creedy: Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

We are told to remember the idea, not the man. Because a man can fail. He can becaught, he can be killed and forgotten. But four hundred years later an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed firsthand the power of ideas. I've seen people kill in the name of them; and die defending them. But you cannot touch an idea, cannot hold it or kiss it. An idea does not bleed, it cannot feel pain, and it does not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. A man who made me remember the fifth of November. A man I will never forget.
